Flame Photometer Advantages

Faster, More Economical, & No Overkill

If you're looking for a cost-effective way to measure metal ions in your lab, look no further than flame photometers. While some labs may have the budget for high-end equipment like gas chromatographs and mass spectrometers, many need to economize and stretch their research funds as far as they can go. Flame photometers provide a reliable, simple, fast, and efficient solution that doesn't require a high level of technical skill or a major investment of time or resources.

Flame photometers are particularly sensitive to low values of Group I and Group II metals, including Sodium, Potassium, Calcium, Barium, and Lithium, which are important in biology, medical analysis, and chemistry. With minimal training, even a novice lab assistant can quickly learn to use a flame photometer effectively, making it an accessible solution for labs of all levels.

One of the major benefits of flame photometers is their low cost. Consumables are minimal and limited to De-ionised water, calibration control solutions, sample cups and flame fuel. The latest models even come with built-in atmospheric air compressors. Conventional gases such as Methane, Propane and Butane can be used to achieve different temperatures depending on the substance being tested.
